I had a very special life event this past weekend. I turned 65 on Sunday. Our lake family made it very special for me. Saturday night was another great meal complete with a birthday cake and homemade ice cream (thanks Tracey). We missed the Haynes and Hancocks though.
Sunday the Hilleys went out on their boat and sent me this very special birthday wish:
Monday was spent with Grandmother who showed us around Sand Mountain. We saw where Anthony and Joe grew up, then went to Mentone and ate at the Wildflower Cafe (one of the top 10 restaurants in Alabama. Our waitress did her best Marilyn Monroe impression of Happy Birthday for me. I loved it!!
We then had a lovely dinner of Stacey’s white beans and pot roast and veggies with Grandmother and Jim and Annette.
It was a fantastic celebration.
Thanks to everyone for making it so special for me!!
Had a great time with our gang at Arrington Vineyards to celebrate Debbie and Vicky’s birthdays. We had cheese, grapes, olives and crackers for starters. Subway sandwiches, chips and cookies for lunch. Homemade chocolate cherry angelfood cake for dessert. And oh yeah, we all enjoyed the great wines from the Kix Brooks (of Brooks & Dunn fame) owned Arrington Vineyards. Love getting together with group on a regular basis!!
We had a FABULOUS time at the lake this past weekend.
Friday night was spent with the Whitts (Anita and Bill), Dennis and Pat. We grilled hamburgers and Bill’s famous Nathan’s hotdogs. Man! those hotdogs are big!! Oh yea, we also played Bill’s favorite card game – Oh Hell.
Saturday evening the whole gang threw a surprise retirement party for Ms Kim. It was an Hawaiian theme complete with decorations, leis, Hawaiian shirts and Hawaiian style food. Congratulations on your 30+ years of teaching young kids how to live. Time to take it easy now!
We ended the weekend with a Mother’s Day brunch from Billy’s. Best biscuits around.
Can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Great friends, great food, and great times. It just doesn’t get much better than this.
This is an annual event to honor Stacey’s nephew who lost his life in a car accident. All proceeds from the event go to a scholarship fund for the local high school golf team. It is great event for a worthy cause.
These pictures so warm our hearts. It is so great to see these 2 brothers spending time with each other and their families. We so love them and wish we could see them more often.
